During this four week workshop we will delve into different elements of the art of clowning such as authenticity, openness, vulnerability and playfulness. Throughout games and laughter we will explore the infinite possibilities of expression by recognising and following our own impulses. This concise workshop is open to all level and there is no experience required.
I am a Clown originally from Chile and living in Ireland since 2002. I studied Acting in Chile and I continue with my development as an artist in Ireland completing a Technical theatre course 2005 and a master degree in Theatre studies in 2009. The same year I started working as a clown and in 2013 I started my training in the Pochinko Method, “clown through mask”, with Sue Morrison. This training revolutionised my understanding of the art of clowning and brought my practice towards a higher artistic level, its main principle is: If we ever face all directions of ourselves at once we could only laugh at the beauty of our own ridiculousness. Following this principle I am interested in the creation of original work that reveals the essence of our humanity in a genuine and abandoned way, creations that speak and deal with themes that are relevant to our times. I want to connect with an audience and bring my personal experience in the performance of universal themes
